Eine lustige S-Bahn Fahrt [Potpourri]

Post by Auceps » 17 Jul 2019 20:24

Hello everybody!

Maybe I've already asked that question here (sorry in that case), but I would like to ask it here again: For a very long time ago there was some medley from the 1930-s (or 1929 maybe) on YouTube which was dedicated either to the Berlin S- or U-Bahn. Practially, it was a musical imitation of a train driving from a station to a station, and on every station the choir sang a short song about the city district where the station was. I remember the songs "Komm, Karlineken, komm, wir woll'n nach Pankow geh'n" and "Komm' mit nach Friedenau, da ist der Himmel blau". Possibly it was a Grammophon recording. Could anybody help me on that matter?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, Auceps

Sounds like Otto Kermbach's medley "Eine lustige S-Bahn Fahrt" (recorded for the "Lied der Zeit" company in 1951):


(A nice idea for a medley, by the way :) )

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello, Ivan,

yes, it sounds like it (I remember that some Otto recorded it, but wasn't sure if it was Kermbach or Dobrindt)! Thank you very, very much for your help again! :)
